Disclaimer:

These numbers will continue to be evaluated as the Health Department obtains additional information on the case count.

Please be advised that the numbers posted here are those that are reported by Hillsborough Township Health Department based on reports from the NJ Department of Health surveillance system. The reported numbers are only from those individuals who have been tested for COVID-19 and are confirmed positive through an FDA approved laboratory for COVID-19 testing purpose. It does not include those contacts of the positive individuals or any individuals, who are sick and have not been tested.


This daily case count increase is reflective of those individuals that have tested positive via the rapid antigen tests and the molecular PCR test.  The State and County are not reporting cases that test positive via rapid antigen testing, hence the variance in Hillsborough's reporting versus State and County.  Any specific questions should be directed to the Township's Health Department at 908-369-5652.

If you are a Hillsborough resident and have tested positive for the Coronavirus / COVID-19, please contact the Health Department at 908-369-5652.
